Hyderabad FC will play their second home game of the Indian Super League (ISL) as NorthEast United visit the 'City of Pearls' on Wednesday evening.

Hyderabad had a poor start to the season, losing their first two matches and conceding eight goals in the process. However, when the team marked their home debut at the GMC Balayogi Stadium, Phil Brown's side scripted an impressive 2-1 victory over Kerala Blasters. As a result, HFC would be confident heading into their clash against NorthEast United.

On the other hand, the Highlanders began their ISL campaign by drawing with Bengaluru FC and defeating Odisha. NorthEast United then hosted FC Goa and could only pick up one point after a 2-2 draw. NEUFC secured the lead in the 74th minute but conceded in injury time to drop two points. Robert Jarni's team will be looking to get back to winning ways when they face Hyderabad on Wednesday.

Robin Singh has only two shots on goal from three matches and Phil Brown might look for alternatives to pair up with Marcelinho up front.

Hyderabad FC vs NorthEast United: Prediction

Although Hyderabad managed to win their previous game, they had shortcomings in all departments. The attack has a lot to improve when compared to NorthEast United. The minute errors in defence will turn costly when facing the Highlanders.

The visitors will hold an upper hand as they have a consistent side with better chemistry. If Jarni's attackers hit their targets, NEUFC will return to winning ways.

Predicted Score - Hyderabad FC 1:3 NorthEast United
